Background

Addis Ababa University (AAU) is one of the largest higher learning institutions in Africa that was established at the end of the 1940s. Formerly known as Haile Selassie I University, AAU was established by Ministry of Education in 1949 as a Trinity College with 71 students and 9 academic staff. It was granted a charter in July 1950 as an autonomous higher learning institution under a different name of the University College of Addis Ababa (UCAA). This makes AAU one of the oldest, if not the oldest, modern African university. The Ethiopian government created several institutions since UCAA was established in 1950s. These include a College of Agriculture in Alemaya, Harar, and College of Building Technology in Addis Ababa. In 1961, the different institutions of higher learning came under a central administration to form what is to become the AAU. It should be noted that many of the institutions in the country that have now become separate institutions, were part of AAU at one time.
